Questions You Can Ask at the Interview

By Ford R. Myers
President of Career Potential, LLC

At the interview, it is perfectly acceptable for you to ask questions and to take notes throughout the meeting (which will help you to formulate your questions). In some cases, you’ll be judged more on the questions you’re asking than the answers you’re giving! After all, you might wind-up working for this interviewer, so it is important for you to find out as much as you can about how he or she works, thinks and communicates.

Often, an interview will end with the employer asking if you have any questions about the position, the company, etc. The worst response is to say, “Nope.”  You should ALWAYS have questions.

Additionally, asking great questions will help you sound like an articulate, savvy business professional. You’ll also seem well-prepared, and genuinely interested in working for the organization! The kind of question that will damage your credibility immediately is the one that shows your lack of preparation or knowledge about the company and its needs. So, do your homework!

Looking for a job is a daunting process. People are experiencing high levels of anxiety due to being “ghosted,” ageism, and trying to leverage an ever-changing technology landscape to gain an advantage. This presentation will focus on the fact that “people” make decisions to hire you as they do to purchase products. The employer must be drawn to consider you as the best available candidate who meets their needs at the best possible value (price). The 4Ps approach (Product, Price, Position, Promotion) was designed to promote your unique selling points that differentiate you from competitors. Curtis Jenkins will take you on his personal journey of using this marketing science to develop and maintain his highly-employable status since being laid-off in 2002.

Key takeaways include:

  1. What the 4Ps are, and how they link with personal branding and job searching
  2. Job search is a team sport; helping others helps you
  3. Be prolific; job search never stops, even when employed
  4. Utilize a project management approach to job search
